Project Title & Description
Beczak Environmental Education Center FFY10-EE
Beczak Environmental Education Center�s programs will provide in-depth experiences focusing on the ecology, culture and history of the Hudson, Saw Mill, and Bronx Rivers. “EPA Environmental River Clubs,” an after school program, will cultivate environmental stewardship among Yonkers students, a traditionally under-served population. Students will participate in environmental hands-on activities aligned with the school district�s Three Rivers of Yonkers Curriculum during a weekly program which engenders awareness, knowledge, a sense of stewardship and civic responsibility for the rivers. One hundred 4th and 5th graderswill participate in this program.
